Through the purposeful use of the elements of the sound composition of the language, through prosody, Alexander Yeremenko revealed to the readers the whole complexity of metaphorizing the known world:

...autumn is torn apart by torpedoes of headlights,

the border museum does not sleep until dawn.

The asphalt was blown up with petal mines,

and the earth burns under your feet until the morning...

And they carry yesterday's sun in a stretcher.

And today's delirium bares its fangs.

but only you in this dark situation - are not an Ace...
